Marco Silva will be given three games to save his job at Everton but is under no uncertain terms it is hanging by a thread.
The under-pressure Toffees boss was left fearing the sack during the international break after losing his last four Premier League matches.
But he was told this week his job is safe – for now.
Everton feel Silva needs time to turn things around and will give him a chance to do it.

The Merseysiders, currently stuck in the bottom three with seven points from eight games, have yet to draw up a shortlist of potential replacements if they were forced to axe the Portuguese.
It emerged earlier this week that former Blues boss David Moyes would be open to a return to Goodison , but it is understood there has been no contact with him.
The axe could still fall if Everton suffer bad defeats in their next two league games, against West Ham and Brighton.
But there is a feeling that Silva will get until the Carabao Cup clash against his former club Watford on October 29, with defeat in that one not an option.
Everton expected to be pushing for a top-six finish after another big summer spend but that now looks unlikely after a terrible start to the season.
In addition, the Toffees have conceded more goals from set pieces than anyone else since Silva took over, and are yet to come back and win a game in which they’ve trailed under his management.

Sources close to Silva insist he feels the club were on the right track before that four-match losing run and that he is confident he can turn things around.
But during a recent meeting with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, the former Watford and Hull boss was left in no doubt the pressure is on.
